LEO ~ Boat Rocker Entertainment

Have you seen LEO? Β Here’s what others have to say about his Anti-Gravity Magic:

LEO is a mind-bending, anti-gravity show. It’s a funny, surreal, and surprisingly touching work that challenges the senses and tests perceptions of reality through the clever interplay of live performance and video projection. Winner of many international awards including Best of Edinburgh.

Time Out New York:
“An eye-teasing, grin-inducing, deeply impressive work of sustained absurdist magic”

The Village Voice
“It’s unusual to hear so many child-like gasps of sheer delighted astonishment in a theater.”

Theatermania
“LEO is utterly delightful. You’re likely to find yourself grinning like a fool while watching LEO. The winner of the Carol Tambor Best of Edinburgh Award at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe LEO combines acrobatics and film work to create a rather unique piece of theater.”

Aah . . . that’s better!

Looks absolutely brilliant. It’s the stuff dreams are made of. You speak of childhood gasps, that’s exactly what it did for me. I love it. so clever.

nrhatch - February 15, 2013

That’s what I thought . . . what a unique way to entertain and mesmerize an audience.

2. Andra Watkins - February 15, 2013

Sounds like it’s right up my alley.

nrhatch - February 15, 2013

LEO is performing here in the Historic Asolo Theater later this month. Don’t know where else he’s touring . . .

3. Grannymar - February 15, 2013

I enjoyed that. Leo is new to me.

nrhatch - February 15, 2013

We received an invitation from the Historic Asolo Theater just yesterday. That sparked my interest.

4. Three Well Beings - February 15, 2013

I haven’t heard of Leo before! I’m sure intrigued. I love this kind of imagination-stirring wonder. πŸ™‚

nrhatch - February 15, 2013

He quite lithe and limber . . . so fluid.

5. colonialist - February 15, 2013

Quite amazing, isn’t it? I must admit it took me far to long to realise that the one on the right was what he was doing and the one on the left the tilted or adapted version of it. Once I did, I was enthralled.

nrhatch - February 15, 2013

We watched several different youtube clips . . . his fluid moves are just fantastic ~ and the “mirror image” really makes the mind concentrate. 😯

6. diannegray - February 15, 2013

This is wonderful! Thanks for sharing, Nancy πŸ˜‰ I’ve never seen him before…

nrhatch - February 15, 2013

He’s quite spectacular. I would love to have some of his SMOOTH MOVES. πŸ˜€

7. kateshrewsday - February 15, 2013

This is amazing, Nancy: mind bending in a vey positive way! I love it. No wonder it wowed Edinburgh.

nrhatch - February 15, 2013

It really does make the mind work harder to fit the pieces of the puzzle together . . . “what’s that now?”

8. shreejacob - February 15, 2013

Hehe…I enjoyed that! Thanks for sharing πŸ™‚

nrhatch - February 16, 2013

My favorite is when he’s sits cross-legged . . . halfway up the way. πŸ˜€

9. Perfecting Motherhood - February 16, 2013

Haha, brilliant! I’ll have to show it to my kids. I’ll be waiting for them to ask, how does he do that???

nrhatch - February 16, 2013

I imagine that the boys would love to try some of his SMOOTH MOVES. I know I would. πŸ˜€

10. bluebee - February 16, 2013

Fun!

nrhatch - February 16, 2013

It’s fascinating to watch . . . and inspiring to think about how he came up with the idea to defy gravity.

11. sweetdaysundertheoaks - February 16, 2013

That would be fun to see!

nrhatch - February 16, 2013

Such a creative idea . . . well executed.

12. ericjbaker - February 16, 2013

Fun. I like when people find new ways to express creativity.

nrhatch - February 16, 2013

It’s like he’s thinking “outside the box” . . . while stuck inside the box. πŸ˜‰

13. SidevieW - February 16, 2013

Great fun

nrhatch - February 16, 2013

He’s like a trapeze artist . . . without the trapeze.

SidevieW - February 17, 2013

and a mime without gravity

14. adeeyoyo - February 16, 2013

Sounds like it is really something original.

nrhatch - February 16, 2013

Understated elegance . . . except, perhaps, for the whale. πŸ˜‰

15. jannatwrites - February 16, 2013

This was pretty cool. I hadn’t heard of Leo before, but the video was entertaining.

nrhatch - February 16, 2013

The execution of some of those moves, standing alone, is rather astounding . . . but the juxtaposition of the two worlds really made my mind work overtime.

16. sufilight - February 17, 2013

Have not heard of this show, will look it up as both Phil and I enjoy these types of shows. BTW, I finally received “The Odd Life of Timothy Green” from the library; was number 80 on the waiting list. Will watch it tomorrow. πŸ™‚

nrhatch - February 17, 2013

LEO might be headed your way ~ it’s on tour at the moment. Hope you enjoy The Odd Life of Timothy Green and decide it was worth the wait.
